The McClure Gallery of the VAC is an exhibition venue for professional artists, community based artists, and young emerging artists. The gallery serves a strong educational function in the community, encouraging public appreciation of contemporary art through seminars, lectures and tours. Accompanying exhibition catalogues are published when funding is available.
While the gallery mostly serves the Montreal and Quebec visual arts community, it welcomes submissions from further afield. We also welcome proposals from guest curators, through our Curatorial Programme.

In this exhibition, McKindsey explores the idea of place as a vessel that carries the traditions, memories, and experiences of the people who have lived within it. Working with a collection of photographs and other archival material from her past and present domestic spaces, the artist presents a series of works including egg tempera paintings, crochet, weavings, and oil paintings that embody the essence of these spaces.
